The Edison Ballroom will once again host its special, Swing into Sprin event, featuring the legendary big band leader, Joe Battaglia and the New York Big Band. Having traveled the world performing with icons like Frank Sinatra, Shirley Bassey, and Tony Bennett, Joe’s brilliant big band sound is considered among the best ever. He has performed for such dignitaries as Hilary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani, and Barbara Walters. For over 15 years, Joe and his orchestra have performed regularly at The Rainbow Room, Tavern on the Green, Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing, and most recently, right here at the Edison Ballroom. Joe’s New York Big Band is composed of a 16- piece orchestra as well as accompanying vocalists. Also featured at this event will be the romantic Latin sounds of Direct Latin Influence, also known as DLI.
Renowned Chef Mina Newman will provide an incredible meal for this special event. The meal will include choices of salad, appetizer, main course and dessert. In the past, appetizer options have included Pan Roasted Sea Scallops, Yellowfin Tuna Tartar, and Butternut Squash Ravioli with Roasted Hazelnuts. Entrées have included choices such as Filet Mignon, served with Scalloped Potatoes and Grilled Asparagus, Roasted Chicken Breast with Potato Hash, and Pan Seared Salmon with Wild Rice Pilaf. Desserts are sure to be festive!
It is nearly impossible these days to find such a wonderful bargain at such a special and romantic setting. Thankfully, The Edison Ballroom has emerged as the new superstar in this arena, offering the finest food, an elegant setting and sophisticated, romantic Big Band style dancing.
